As Dior rises to prominence with his groundbreaking, iconic imprint of beauty and influence, Chanel’s reign as the world’s most famous fashion designer is put into jeopardy. The interwoven saga follows the surprising stories of Dior’s contemporaries and rivals from Chanel to Pierre Balmain, Cristóbal Balenciaga and more; and, provides a stunning view into the atelier, designs and clothing created by Christian Dior through collaboration with the House of Dior,” reads the description provided by Apple.
The New Look is produced by Apple Studios and DB-AK Productions, and is written, executive produced and directed by Kessler. The series premieres with its first three episodes on February 14, 2024, with the remaining episodes set to release weekly every Wednesday through April 3.
